Laurie Mounts was injured in 2008 and later diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). When she presented at Calmare Therapy NJ in July 2014, her pain level was a 9/10 on her entire left side from her feet up to the shoulder.
Laurie’s symptoms includes discoloration (see image at left), allodynia, numbness, tingling, sweats, swelling, burning and brittle hair.
Trying Other Pain Management Treatments Without Success
Before discovering scrambler therapy, Laurie tried pain relief treatments including physical therapy and prescription medications. Ultimately she had a spinal cord stimulator ( SCS ) implanted but did not achieve sustained pain relief.
After traveling 3,000 to us for treatment, Laurie and her mother shared her outcome here:
Time for Calmare booster treatments
Depending on the severity of the original neuropathic condition, and length of time the patient has been experiencing chronic pain, periodic booster treatments can be extremely useful against any eventual elevation in pain.
Just shy of three years since her original 10 daily scrambler therapy treatments, Laurie’s CRPS pain was steadily increasing. But this time, she knew what to do. She scheduled booster appointment treatments. (Laurie had 10 treatments, but some patients require as few as a single treatment).
When we opened our pain management clinic this morning and checked our Facebook page, we were delighted to be greeted by an image of her smiling and this message:
Feeling ABSOLUTELY amazing right now!! Best I’ve felt yet!! Thanks Dr Cooney!! You’re my hero!! 😘
